Praying For The Persecuted.

Memory Verse

“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12).

Text: 2 Timothy 3:10-13.

Persecuted people are those who are treated cruelly and unfairly, especially because of their beliefs. Since the beginning of Christendom, the Church has been under various forms of persecution, from mild to fierce. The early Church went through it. And so, it is today in many places. The worldly will persecute the godly because they hate righteousness. According to Henry, “It is better to incur the world’s hatred by testifying against its wickedness than gain its goodwill by going down the stream with it.” All believers must be daily ready to suffer persecution. Our text highlights persecution of the saints. So, the persecuted need our prayers for God’s intervention and for them to endure persecutions triumphantly.
Jesus said, “If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you…” (John15:20). My friend, what do you do when persecuted? Pray for yourself and the persecutors. You must endure in faith and if necessary, flee elsewhere to continue God’s work. Persecuted saints need prayers from believers to overcome. Remember, the Early Church prayed for imprisoned Peter and God delivered Him. Identify Christians under persecution and pray for them.
